folkyflo & the little eves

A few weeks ago I introduced everyone to FolkyFlo Eve. And now it’s time to introduce you to the Little Eves. The idea of a smaller Eve arose when I felt the original Eve was a little too cumbersome and conspicuous for me to carry around. So I kept her with friends (she had a great time, but […]

the reincarnation of eve

I have been following Laura Bevan on Instagram for a while now. As I do with many artist friends I’ve ‘met’ on Instagram, I like a lot of her posts/artwork. But it’s her dolls I fell in love with. Because I’m always up for a collaboration, I asked her if she would create an Eve for me, […]

UK days } april 28 to may 8, 2016 } part II

This trip has been packed. For someone who has made it her mission this time to ‘chill’, I’ve done a lot, met new friends and caught up with old ones. This sojourn has, however, been a bit of a challenge, at moments even regretful…I don’t know why…well, I do but I won’t tell, for various reasons. Funny enough, […]

UK days } part VI

This part of my London trip starts October 3rd. On the advice of a friend, I visited Erno Goldfinger’s home on Willow Street in Hampstead. I didn’t take any photos there but I left the house with a sense of having been there before. It evoked feelings of life in Iran in the mid-70s, even though the home […]

UK days } part V

This is the fifth part of my last trip to London (I’m posting a week’s worth of pics at a time) spanning September 26th to October 2nd. In terms of reuniting with old friends, meeting new ones and visiting family, this week was my busiest.

UK days } part IV

I’m posting the rest of my September/October ‘UK days’ retrospectively, as my laptop went wonky after only a week in London. I’m back in Kuwait now, recovering from my very long trip, getting back into the hang of things.

We leave in nine days. We leave Anna’s place in two. My heart is breaking already, no matter how much I miss my children, home and family.

thinking about tattoos

I haven’t really told anyone because a. I was worried it was just a whim and b. I don’t really care for the larger public to know, but I’m seriously considering the art of tattoo as a career. Well, tandem to everything else I’m doing. I know I have my own aesthetic and my own […]

UK days } part II

It’s been a busy few days since my sister and I arrived in London on September 10. You may notice that there isn’t a Part I to this, and that’s because I started this trip’s log with an Airplane Timelines post. I have very confused organizational methods.

airplane timelines } ba 156 kuwait to heathrow

It’s a long trip to London this time and I’m wondering if I made the right decision to stay for this long. It’s just that I’m at a crossroads and need to be here to know exactly how I want to conduct the next few years of my life.

uk days } the most wonderful trip

What a perfect little trip I took. All across the board, from finally visiting the Dennis Severs House, to successful shopping sprees, to a dear friend’s wedding. And even the pitfalls were to laugh about almost immediately. But alas with a most wonderful trip, comes a tremendous dip. I was feeling the anti-climax all day yesterday. […]

UK days } part I } days one, two & the day before

Because I didn’t have time in the city, and when I went to Surrey there was no wi-fi, I could not update my blog on a regular basis. I’ve divided this series of posts into six parts: four parts covering my stay in the UK, a Traveling Tap post and a Stories of Eve post. […]

airplane timelines/UK days part five } beirut > london > kuwait

I decided to consolidate and ended up with a messy title, but it’s the only way I can do this right now and move on to other things. I’ve decided to sandwich the last of my UK days in between two Airplane Timeline entries. It makes more sense this way. Bon appetit! Oh and I’ve decided that the […]
